Product Details

Whirlpool Duet Diamond Steel Smart Electric Steam Dryer, Model WEL98HEBSS

Note: The manufacturer does not include a power cord with this item due to different outlet configurations. Check your outlet configuration to determine which cord is required then click the accessories tab below to purchase the correct one for your home.

The 6th Sense Live Technology integrated into the Whirlpool Duet Diamond Steel Smart Electric Steam Dryer WEL98HEBU keeps you constantly connected to your appliances, helping save you time, stress and money.

By keeping you connected to your Whirlpool dryer, the 6th Sense Live system alerts you to potential service issues, letting you address them immediately and minimizing dryer downtime. One of the main benefits of this smart dryer is the Airflow Alert. If the dryer detects any vent obstructions, you'll receive an Airflow Alert via text, email or the Whirlpool 6th Sense App. Reduced airflow can increase drying times and energy use, as well as lead to excessive lint buildup within the dryer, and the active monitoring of the Whirlpool WEL98HEBU will help you avoid these problems.

Thanks to its internet connectivity, the Whirlpool WEL98HEBU gives you complete control from anywhere. With remote start and pause functions, you can load the dryer before work, and remotely start the cycle right before you head back home. The Clothes Dry Nudge notifies you when the cycle is complete. If you get delayed, simply activate Wrinkle Shield, and the dryer will periodically tumble your clothes to keep wrinkles from setting in. Another benefit of the intelligent 6th Sense system is the Energy Advisor, which monitors fluctuating energy rates and lets you schedule your drying cycles when they'll cost the least.

Beneath all of the smart enhancements, the WEL98HEBU is still one of Whirlpool's best dryers, packed with an array of innovative features from one of the leaders of laundry technology. Four baffles spread out larger items for better drying, while keeping smaller items from getting stuck. An interior light will help when unloading your clothes, preventing those mysterious sock disappearances. Advanced Moisture Sensing monitors moisture levels in the dryer to prevent overdrying, which can cause clothes shrinkage, while the Static Reduce option uses steam to prevent static buildup on finished loads. Ecoboost uses less heat and an extended cycle time to save energy. And if you decide to save even more energy by running your dryer at night, the SilentSteel dryer drum and Quiet Dry Ultra sound-dampening system will ensure your dryer doesn't disturb your rest.

*6th Sense Live Appliances requires internet access and a wireless router.

The features on this machine are awesome. Connecting the machines on the wifi was a little tricky, however it was made complicated by my somewhat old network routers that don't have WPS. Reading the instructions before trying to setup access to wifi was instrumental in making this easy. Once i used a WPS enabled wireless router, connecting them was a breeze. The switch and the machines did it themselves. I bought these machines specifically because I use NEST thermostats in my house. It's amazing how the machines will know we're not home and continue tumbling and adding air to prevent any smell to the clothes until we can get them out. The machines also will send us text messages when the load is done which is helpful because we can do whatever else we need to and not worry to constantly check the status. The App is also a great way to check the status of the load. These machines replaced some fairly old top loads that I had, and the first load of whites in these machines were whiter than ever. Being able to load the detergent and forgetting about it until notified by the machines is also a plus. I don't think about my laundry anymore. I just follow the machine's instructions. All in all, this is a great machine and the best investment i made in a while. Yes, they were a bit on the expensive side, but with all the features and the fact the washer uses very little detergent and electricity makes it absolutely worth it. Highly recommended to anybody.

The set up of this system was more complicated than we anticipated and we are tech savy. I think there could have been an easier way for the company to connect the wifi to the system. Other than that, now that everything is set up, we love the dryer. There is a lot of room. I was able to put very bulky loads of comforters in without any issues.

      Best Uses

        I bought this a month ago. We had an other brand that finally gave up the ghost. Consumer Reports had this listed in the top 3 dryers for its quietness - which was first priority on my wish list. When I received it and found out it was smart as well - it really upped my expectations. This dryer can text you when your clothes are done. It can be worked remotely to let it know you will be home soon and to not let the clothes wrinkle. It has a smart grid feature which looks at the electricity level and advises when best to use the machine. Love it! By the way it is whisper quiet too and it is MADE in the USA!

              This dryer has everything it takes to get those items dry, spins so fast it makes you dizzy. Hand to change the location of the door on mine to fit the room, instructions was very helpful in doing so.

                    I received my dryer about 6 weeks ago. Was easy to use from start. Really love the cell phone feature as my laundry is down stairs and I am upstairs. Also like that I can program it to not wrinkle my clothes remotely.

                          fluff after the cycle has ended, the easy to use options with the large LED screen, and most of all the energy star rating.

The switch and the machines did it themselves. I bought these machines specifically because I use NEST thermostats in my house. It's amazing how the machines will know we're not home and continue tumbling and adding air to prevent any smell to the clothes until we can get them out. The machines also will send us text messages when the load is done which is helpful because we can do whatever else we need to and not worry to constantly check the status. The App is also a great way to check the status of the load. These machines replaced some fairly old top loads that I had, and the first load of whites in these machines were whiter than ever. Being able to load the detergent and forgetting about it until notified by the machines is also a plus. I don't think about my laundry anymore. I just follow the machine's instructions. All in all, this is a great machine and the best investment i made in a while. Yes, they were a bit on the expensive side, but with all the features and the fact the washer uses very little detergent and electricity makes it absolutely worth it. Highly recommended to anybody.

                                                  Have had about two months. So far love it. Wish the signals were louder. Haven't hooked up the steam on the dryer yet. Hope to once the laundry room is remodeled.

                                                  I finally got the dryer and I no longer need dryer sheets. Everything always smells great. It dries as dry as you want it. Make your own cycle. Lengthen or shorten theirs. It even tells you when to clean the air screen going out of your house, so less chance of fire from that. I just love it.
